It's easy to forget how hard it is for poor countries to become rich. Before this year's emerging market turmoil, too many held a breezy assumption that developing countries will surely walk down a road to prosperity. A more realistic model of development is Mexico http://econ.st/1Mo3YtY

A personhood amendment that I can actually support!

"A person identifying as a woman and/or having a uterus shall retain all of the full, basic, and fundamental rights of a US citizen as promised by the Declaration of Independence—life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Congress and the States shall make no law that infringes upon a person's life, including but not limited to access to life-saving or life-improving healthcare, and/or medicines and procedures deemed necessary or beneficial by a medical professional and/or by the person having the uterus, procurement of which shall not be denied in and of itself by the presence of a uterus. Congress and the States shall make no law that infringes upon a person's liberty, including but not limited to autonomy over hir own body and the ability to make decisions regarding hir own healthcare. Congress and the States shall make no law that interferes with a person's pursuit of happiness, including but not limited to access to a full spectrum of reproductive options, freedom from forcible reproduction, and the ability to make decisions regarding family planning and family resources."

"Just how bad is the gap? Pretty bad. According to eHealthInsurance.com, in Chicago a 30-year-old woman pays 31 percent more than a man of her same age pays. In Louisville, Kentucky, a 40-year-old nonsmoking woman pays 53 percent more than a nonsmoking man of the same age. The nonsmoking woman even pays 14 percent more than the premium a male smoker pays."
A lot of personal finance advice tells you to negotiate for a lower price on everything from cars to rent. But this requires you to do two things that are kind of uncomfortable in American society:

FUCK YES. Down with DOMA.
A battle over a law that denies federal benefits for married same-sex couples is headed to an appeals court in Massachusetts, the first state in the nation to legalize gay marriage.

"Women seem to compete better when they're competing against women. And once you bring men into the equation, they kind of dial it down a little bit. That's what we're seeing in a lot of the research."

Birth control, abortions, prenatal care, postpartum care, child care — whatever we may think, whatever we may have been told — are not women’s issues. THEY ARE HUMAN ISSUES.There is a purely incandescent rage that comes over me now on a nearly daily basis over the blatant dehumanization of women that is currently sweeping the nation. It is exhausting. It is heart breaking. It is spirit crushing. And there’s nothing to be done but to continue to feel it, because I refuse to stop fighting for my right, my daughter’s right, my mother’s right, my sister’s right — the inalienable right of all women everywhere — to human dignity.

This is the most authentic Chinese restaurant in Boston outside of Chinatown. Try the Northern Chinese specialties, and if you don't see something you want on the menu, order it anyway - they'll probably cook it for you! And if you're not sure what to order, the owner will give you lots of suggestions. If you must go with Americanized Chinese food, the General Gao's Tofu is to die for. The decor isn't amazing, but it's nicer than Chinatown. The service has always been good to me. This place is cheap and amazingly tasty.
